Rob Clough from High-low on Josh Bayer’s THETH :

"In his Marvel Comics cover versions and punk takes on figures like G.Gordon Liddy, Josh Bayer has been exploring the ways in which ideas like integrity, autonomy and idealism can often be used to mask cruelty, hatred and selfishness. Building a loose continuity between projects, these ideas come to a head in THETH, which is about the superhero-loving kid who wears a Rom-like mask over his head and has trouble dealing with the harshness of everyday life. This story doesn’t represent his heartwarming triumph over the odds nor his unlikely rescue from a family and community that doesn’t understand him. Instead, THETH details his bleak and inevitable betrayal by not only his family but from a fellow outcast as well. Bayer’s savagely scribbly line and grotesque character design retain a sense of whimsy that make the story’s more visceral moments all the more effective."

SPX Ad by Picnic Ruined creator Roman Muradov, who also is a special guest at SPX this year :D
spx:

Check out this beautiful ad created by SPX 2014 Special Guest, Roman Muradov.  You’ll be seeing it in your finer comics tabloids starting this month - please pause to scan that KILLER list of Special Guests!
The latest group of guests will be officially announced this week, including: Box Brown, Eleanor Davis, Michael DeForge, and Roman Muradov.  
Much more to say and highlight on all these folks, but for now here’s a few words of (probably unnecessary) introduction:
Box Brown will be at SPX to sign his critically acclaimed book, Andre the Giant: Life and Legend, published by First Second Books. Box has won a Xeric grant and his mini-comics have garnered two Ignatz Awards. He is also the founder of Retrofit Comics, where he publishes his own mini-comics as well as works from over 30 other creators.
Eleanor Davis’ new compendium of short stories from Fantagraphics titled How To Be Happy will debut at SPX 2014. In 2013, Eleanor won the Society of Illustrators Gold Medal for Sequential/Series Work, and her book Stinky won the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award awarded by the American Library Association. She designed this year’s bookplate for the SPX Graphic Novel Gift Program, as well as this past Spring’s Google Doodle.
Michael DeForge and Koyama Press will debut at SPX Lose #6, the latest in his award winning series of comics. Michael is the winner of multiple Doug Wright and Ignatz Awards and is one of the designers for the popular animated TV series, Adventure Time.
Roman Muradov is both a comics creator and illustrator, with his artistic works appearing in The New York Times, The New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal, amongst other esteemed publications. SPX will see the London and New York based publisher Nobrow debut Roman’s latest book, (In A Sense) Lost and Found, and Retrofit Comics will debut his latest mini comic, Picnic Ruined.
Enormous thanks to Roman for donating his time and talent to creating a piece of art to promote SPX 2014!
